ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Particle Junkie is Flynn Gleason.

In 1995, being a bit of a nerd, he fell in love with synthesizers and drum machines. He joined his friend Adam LaBarge to embark on a project called Fulcrum Clearance 12'0" (or fc120). Using software, they forged their own cut and paste style of music based in synthetic soundscapes and experimental noise, inspired summarily by a few Warp Records artists and a rather healthy dose of industrial.

Over the years the tools got better, and so did the music, but they never saw fit to release it to more than friends, always focused on creating the next great song rather than promotion or money. After a good run, Adam moved onto other ventures, and Flynn continued composing under the name Facade. This went on for the next few years, as he branched out from his dark influences, exploring melodies, sound design, rhythm, and vocals, striving to deliver funk while challenging the notion that electronic music is cold and unemotional. Never one to stick to a genre, the only way to somewhat accurately phrase what you may hear in an average Particle Junkie song is a good beat and a collage of synthesizers morphing and blipping in a surreal pseudo-organic fashion, sometimes with vocals, robotic or otherwise. Eventually Flynn decided the name Facade was "a little too pretentious or something," and changed his name to Particle Junkie, which is far less pretentious by his estimation.

Which brings us to today, and the release of his debut album, "Hot'n'Nerdy". The album ranges from long evolving danceable soundscapes to humorous pop songs about nerds and salmon teriyaki. If particulate matter has you hooked, here's an excuse to celebrate.

Unique, Diverse, Intelligent, Dope.
Clearly, Particle Junkie has chosen not to follow any rules. This is an albumn that crosses preconceived lines and blends styles and sounds to generate unique electronic music. So, whether you want; a deep track that makes you feel melancholy, grind on the dance floor, makes you bop your head/dance like a fool, or simply provide comic relief involoving Japanese food or women that look like librarians, Particle Junkie has you covered with this strong debut effort.
